10 most useful Fx-Foundry plugins for Gimp beginners.

My last post was about some useful gimp filters. In this post I'll enlist 10 most useful Fx-foundry plugins for gimp beginners to grab some speed in their learning process. The list is as following:

  • Fx-Foundry:
    • Analogize : It makes any picture look as if it had been taken using an old analog
      camera. Exaggerates contrast and saturation and creates a bright and a dark overlay randomly placed. Think of it as kind of a Lomo Kompakt or Kodak instantmatic faking effect. Read More
    • Amazing Circles : Amazing Circle technique with advanced options. Includes options to choose border colour (or calculate from border average), border size and vignetting effect, whirl/pinch distortion, alternate circle method, plus optional drop shadow & shading. Read More
    • Orton Effect : Orton imagery, also called an Orton slide sandwich, is a photography technique which blends two completely different photos of the same scene, resulting in a distinctive mix of high and low detail areas within the same photo. Read More
    • Vivid Saturation : Vivid saturation of image. Gives similar effect as many Digital Velvia filters do for the Other Product. Read More
    • Bercovich Lomo : A variation of lomo effect. Read More
    • Lomo Effect : Lomo-Gimp tries to give your digital pictures the warmth of those taken by an old rangefinder analog camera. Think of it as a Kodak Instamatic or a Lomo Holga faking effect. It enhances contrast and saturation, and applies a light and a dark overlay, trying to emulate incorrectness in exposition. Read More
    • Cross Processing Effect : Cross processing (sometimes abbreviated to Xpro) is the procedure of deliberately processing photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film. Read More
    • MidNight Sepia : Midnight Sepia applies a soft-focus effect, as well as a slight sepia toning (or any other hue, you can choose) to create a 'dreamy' effect. Read More
    • Graduated Filter : Graduated filter, is an optical filter that has a variable light transmission.  It is used to bring an overly-bright part of a scene into the dynamic range of film or sensor. For example, it can be used to darken a bright sky so that both the sky and subject can be properly exposed. Read More
    • Diffusion Filter : A diffusion filter is a translucent photographic filter used for a special effectRead More
I hope these are helpful. Enjoy...

How to create a futuristic hero with Gimp.

I am a great fan of sci-fi themed art. The way these artworks represent the future generate a massive curiosity in our mind about "how the thing are going to be in the future". This curiosity inspired me to produce sci-fi artwork using my imagination. And the first things that hot my mind were Superheroes, world war, aliens etc. When I tried to combine these things they were all directing to a single and awesome option HALO. HALO was the game I was recently playing. So I set my mind to create a HALO artwork with a futuristic twist in it, And you are going to do that with me too. So let's make our World War 3 artwork with HALO.
